Tabulating Rhode Island’s FY2011 Federal Earmarks
For those interested, HERE is a working list of all of the earmarks contained in the lame duck FY2011 budget. I assume it will be continually updated as required (hence, the “working”). I’ve also broken out the RI earmarks from messr’s Reed, Whitehouse, Langevin and Kennedy and you can download it HERE.
All told, according to the latest info, RI’s Congressional delegation has requested $53,625,000, broken down as follows:
* Approximately $41.4 million tabbed for Department of Defense projects
* $2.65 million is tabbed for EPA–particularly wastewater improvement projects–and Parks Service projects
* $2.5 million for economic development projects (broadly defined) with money going to the John H. Chafee Center for International Business, Rhode Island School of Design and URI
* Approximately $7.12 million is going to various projects under the Dep’t of Labor, HHS, & Education.
